British Medical Acupuncture Society

The British Medical Acupuncture Society was formed in 1980 as an association of medical practitioners interested in acupuncture.

It is now a nationwide group of over 2700 registered doctors and allied health professionals who practise acupuncture alongside more conventional techniques. The BMAS believes that acupuncture has an important role to play in health care today and promotes the use of acupuncture as a therapy following orthodox medical diagnosis by suitably trained practitioners.

During the past few years, acupuncture has become increasingly popular. Whilst it is exciting that the range of medical applications of acupuncture is increasing, it does mean that the responsible practitioner of acupuncture has a duty to educate both other medical colleagues and the general public about the strengths and weaknesses of the technique.

Very large claims have been made for acupuncture in the past. Not all of them can be substantiated. Such claims are worrying and can alienate many people - doctors among them - who might otherwise be sympathetic to the view that acupuncture can, in selected cases, be an effective method of treatment.

The British Medical Acupuncture Society runs training programmes in the UK for doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals.
